Downtown lunch suggestions?

Momofuku Daisho does a great lunch. Great space too.

Lots of high profile new restaurant closings, anyone know why?

probably "stuck in vancouver"

Best bets for Thanksgiving dinner 2014?

The Daisho Thanksgiving dinner is $65/person.

Corkage and Chef's Table / Tasting Menu

good points!

Shoto does corkage.

Moxie's

The Keg is the best chain restaurant in Canada….

Please review my agenda. Thank you!

You could go to Momofuku Daisho for lunch on weekdays, then you'd get your momofuku fix in....they have a gorgeous glass cubed room, and you could have a really great meal there. But not open for lunch on weekends.

TO Chowhounders: favorite brunch places?

I love it there. Just don't go hungry because the wait is almost unbearable. Also, use the secret restroom UPstairs, not the scary one DOWNstairs.

Where are you still eating that you were 20 years ago and is still good?

It blows my mind that Pizza Pizza charges $3.75 for their delivery.

Jacobs & Co.

My boyfriend got a promotion and wanted to celebrate at H60 - we've never been, but have both been to Jacobs, Barbarians, Mortons - what should we order? Which place is it most similar to? I hate questions like this. Sorry…it's been a long week...

Daisho

Yup! BEST THING EVER I'VE EVER HAD. But - I would say maybe split it, or else you'll fall into a food coma at your desk (a wonderful, well-deserved food coma)

Momofuku restaurants at ShangriLa - why no prices on on line menus?

This is a strange argument. All food at restaurants costs more than what it would cost to buy the ingredients and make it at home -- it's the experience of going out as well as the expertise of the chef that you go for. If you don't like Noodle Bar…which you clearly don't…don't go there?

Momofuku restaurants at ShangriLa - why no prices on on line menus?

They'll happily send you a menu with prices if you call and ask. They change their menu daily, so I assume it's because of how often the menu changes.

Bad Service - Libretto's on Ossington

Besides it being slow, what was "bad" about the service? Just that everyone was helping out with bringing you food, and a management decision to have 17% be the default on the handheld?

Anyone been to Cluny in the Distillery yet?

So you think everyone on Yelp is a friend or family, but that Chowhounders are unbiased reviews? So many of us on here are in the business, etc….

Instant Breakfast Cereal

Tim Horton's oatmeal is surprisingly good. I get it plain (you can get it with fruit or brown sugar/maple topping, but I like the nutty taste of plain oatmeal) and then chop up a banana in it that I bring on my own. When you put the banana slices in right away, they warm up and melt in a delightful way.

has anyone eaten at Pai Northern Thai Kitchen?

Got a chance to go tonight. No line up (we had no reservations), were seated right away. Service was friendly, informative and helpful (we asked for recommendations, etc). We had the green curry in the coconut (and scraped up the coconut, thanks for the tip!), the pad thai and pad graw pow. Perfect amount of food to share for two of us. No liquor license, but after the weekend I had, that was okay by me ;) Total cost was $50 after tax, but before tip. Oh and the decor was great! I'll definitely be back!!

has anyone eaten at Pai Northern Thai Kitchen?

Thank you!! So excited to report back!

has anyone eaten at Pai Northern Thai Kitchen?

Will they be open tomorrow?

If anybody is still interested in Summerlicious 2014, menus posted at...

Definitely book online for Momofuku, for Winterlicious that was way easier. Their reservations open at 9 am on the 19th, so standard business day hours.

Please help me prioritise: Business trip to Toronto

Go to Daisho for their terrace, has a great lunch menu and right in the sun.

El Caballito Tequila y Tacos

I've been here twice. The first time, I just had drinks. We sat at the bar, the bartender was very friendly, in that "King Street tourist" kind of way (as in, appealing more to someone probably not from Toronto). I went back a few days later because I wanted to try the tacos - sat at the bar - the bartender says, "oh! You're back!" to me...but I was with a different man...so maybe someone should teach him Service 101: Subtly. Anyway, the food was good, but I still found service off. I'd give it one more try and then average out the experiences.

Travel (often) to Toronto. Can't miss restaurants cab ride from Yorkville?

C'est What has just as good a selection as Volo, no? (I know that's not the area OP is asking for)

Anthony Rose New Restaurant - Fat Pasha

Exact opposite of our experience! She gave us no helpful suggestions, sort of just looked at us when we asked for direction, and didn't listen to what we were saying we wanted to eat. We had to wait at the beginning for 30 minutes for our reservation, but then everything else went very fast.

Anthony Rose New Restaurant - Fat Pasha

I was there on Tuesday, we liked the food but thought the service wasn't that great. It was an "okay" review on my end - I'd give it another shot, but I'm not yet recommending it to anyone else.

Momofuku Shoto (long)

Yeah, I think with Noodle Bar it's about strategic ordering. Not everything is good, but once you understand what you like and what you don't, it gets better.

Momofuku Shoto (long)

I find Daisho offers the things that Shoto misses on. Have you been there yet?

Momofuku Shoto (long)

I've done the $95/person one. I haven't had the longer one, so I can't compare. But my experience was wonderful, and I was beyond full afterwards.

Momofuko Milk Bar

I don't think they use gelatin, I quickly saw an ingredient list because I was curious re: gluten free (for a friend), and the only allergen I saw was "dairy", whereas gelatin would flag as non-vegetarian, I think...might be something to look into (if anyone is wondering, Double Double is gluten free but cereal milk is not)

Momofuko Milk Bar

The cup was $5.25, and the topping was an additional 75 cents
